Every cloud has a Silver lining!

 
Har utfordret meg selv til å male i nedtonede farger denne gangen, og det var absolutt ikke enkelt, penseln min prøvde hele tiden og male i 'ekte' farger... 
Men med god hjelp fra Tim Holtz 'Black soot', 'Hickory smoke' & 'Iced spruce', og den nye gjengen (Oxides) hjalp også til så jeg fikk 'jekket ned' de mere fargerike tonene ;)

Kortet mitt er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #146., og det nydelige hovedmotivet er et digistempel fra vår nye sponsor LeAnn's World 101
Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

For todays project I have challenged myself to watercolor in muted colortones.. Wich proved to be very difficult! I felt the paintbrush constantly wanting to paint in 'real' inks!.. Luckily Tim Holtz 'Black soot', 'Hickory smoke' & 'Iced spruce' are good friends to have when attempting to mute down the brighter 'noisier' inks.. And the new grungy bad boys, the Oxides, were a big help as well ;)

My DT card for this fortnights challenge #146. at Creative Fingers has a gorgeous umbrella girl motif from our sponsor LeAnn's World 101. ♥ 
As always we're having an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations :)

inside detail

I don't own a MINC machine (yet) but I got a few of the Heidi Swapp MINC reactive foils! I used the mint colored one, wich was a perfect for this card ~ and I simply added it onto high-tack tape, rubbing it with a bonefolder. 
It doesn't work as good as with the laminator, and if you mess to much with it, it may scratch off and become sticky ~ but it's still a very nice and easy (plus cheap) way of foiling :) 


As you can see by this detail pic, I added glossy accents 
to some of the raindrops, and the 'Silver' word. 
I like adding a bit of shine whenever I can :)


I also found a matching envelope in my stash, how lucky!
 

Stamps/Images: LeAnn's World 101 'LW101 Cindys Umbrella' digistamp. Creative Stamping #38. 'Whatever the weather' stampset (sentiment/clouds++). Heidi Swapp Clear Stamp 'Chevron background'.
Papers: I prefer Canson Montvale aquarelle paper (200 g/m coldpressed) for my motifs. Bazzill cardstock. Plain white cardstock. Panduro Hobby 'Circus' 12x12 PP.

Embellishments: None! the foiling is blingy enough :)

Tools: I always use my Scor-Pal to score n fold my cards. My distress tools from Ranger Ink is always in use ~ Tim Holtz® Mini Ink Round Blending Tool & the Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool and Foams. EK Success® 'Inverted Corner Punch'.
Dies: Creative Expressions - Sue Wilson 'Australian Collection - Background Die Set'.
Essentials/Adhesives: Rangers Glossy accents. Double sided tape. Woodware High-Tack Double Sided Red Tape (Red Liner/Stix2/Miracle tape). Heidi Swapp MINC reactive foil 'Mint'.
Techniques/Mediums:  I used misc. Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads & Oxide inkpads to watercolor and distress image and papers. To heat emboss (chevron pattern) I used a Versamark inkpad, a heat gun tool & white Top Boss embossingpowder. To give the whole motif a bit more shine, I spritzed it lightly with a mix of mica and water.
